Did anyone install the new firmware update V2.1 for the LX3 yet? Or for that matter any of the updates past V1.1. Just wondering if there was any white balance difference compared to V1.1 as that is the one currently on my camera. Thanks

Yesterday I updated my LX3 to v2.1 from v1.1 and found that pictures taken at even higher shutter speeds were soft and undefined under the same lighting conditions. That being said, I don't know for sure if something in my rig has changed allowing more vibration to the camera. Previously I could not believe the quality from this camera and have taken thousands of pictures but these pictures have been the worst by far. If you have not updated you may want to hold off. I cannot check my rig out for a few days but will report back when I do.

So far "club" forums, the feedback on 2.1 os good. "like having a whole new camera" with AF much quicker.

I'm still not ready yet to take the plunge... Time for you guys to be our lab

If I do give this a go and it isn't any good, can I roll-back to V1?

edit... duh. I guess I should read the manual...

Home made camera mount was just touching skid/noodle. Camera and update seem fine. Sorry for any false alarms. I use a Lowe's sign about a mile and half away for a benchmark while attempting to maintain same position, conditions and camera settings. I am posting a pictures Lowe's is upper middle right second picture but they are degraded from compression. This is the same as before the update. There seems to be some white balance improvement.
